Each state correctional facility is required to pass 100 percent of the 62 mandatory standards and 98 percent of the non-mandatory standards. Every department in the facility is responsible for showing proof they are meeting those standards through its practices.
The facility's official score is 98.43 percent.
Miami Correctional Facility was first accredited by the American Correctional Association in 2004. With this accreditation comes the responsibility of meeting the standards and passing a reaccreditation audit every three years. The facility passed its last reaccreditation in 2012. This is the first year of the next cycle. MCF will go through its next accreditation in 2015.
DNR welcomes Monticello officer
Seven new Indiana Conservation Officers officially joined the Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Law Enforcement during graduation ceremonies this month at the Indiana Government Center South.
Jarred E. Coffing, Monticello, was among the new officers, who represented the 33rd recruit class of the oldest law enforcement agency in the state. He has been assigned to District 4 in Delaware County.
The DNR employs 214 Conservation Officers who in addition to enforcing state laws are often called upon to help during emergencies and natural disasters. They also engage in non-law enforcement activities such as outdoor instructional programs, including boater, hunter, snowmobile, and trapper education.
